Wearing a gorgeous summer dress selected from her new online boutique, Just For Tonight, Sue Duminy looked amazing. After the recent release of her first fragrance for women, “Jeannie in a Bottle” (now in stores at Clicks nationwide), television personality Jeannie D, looked radiant in a dress also by D’Ore Boutique.It was wonderful spending the afternoon watching polo and sipping Veuve Clicquot champagne with SA singing sensation Jimmy Nevis, journalist Clayton Morar, owner of Pallu Boutique (situated in Sandton, Johannesburg) Peta Eggierth-Symes, international actress Natalie Becker, presenter Tracey Lange, celebrity stylist Jasna Zellerhoff, beauty blogger Leigh van den Berg, dance music duo Locnville (Andrew and Brian Chaplin), Olympic Gold Medalist Ryk Neethling, Misty Louw, television personality Liezel van der Westhuizen and so many more, with a guest appearance by model Roxy Louw.

And if all that wasn’t luxurious enough, the official vehicle sponsor for this event was none other than Bentley, offering chauffeur transfers to SA’s elite. It was certainly a highlight on the South African social calendar all put together by the team at Vivid Luxury PR, headed by Anina Malherbe.

With a legacy for excellence in fashion and clothing design perfected over 110 years, Tiger Of Sweden has opened it’s doors in Cape Town. Guests including singer Danny K, television personalities Jennifer Su, Liezel van der Westhuizen and Leigh-Anne Williams, actress Vanessa Haywood as well as former Miss South Africa Nicole Flint were invited to enjoy an evening of fine fashion, canapés and champagne at the official launch of the new Tiger of Sweden at the V&A Waterfront. It was certainly a spectacular event with models showcasing some of the brands most iconic and modern pieces while guests browsed the collections and tried a few garments on.

It’s a philosophy in a sense, we want to have a different cut to make us more unique, “ Ronnie McDonald, responsible for the menswear tailoring department, tells me, “It can mean a detail, it can mean a silhouette, fabric. It’s the idea that we’re constantly striving to be unique in some ways.” Over a glass of sauvignon blanc at the Table Bay Hotel in Cape Town, I chatted with Fredrik Folkesson, Product Manager and Head Sourcer Denim, about their jeans. “We looked at the market, we wanted to do a different cut when it came to silhouettes and fits, to [take] out the cow-boy and put in the rockstar instead.” says Fredrik, “A bit of rock and roll.”

One of Cape Town’s hottest summer spots, the evening was enjoyed by celebrities and some of South Africa’s top bloggers including Leigh van den Berg, Elrico Bellingan, Karisa Nichols, Clouds Drummond and Jasna Zellerhoff.
